I don't know if this should be posted here or not , but is there a way you can use insurance or even financing for limb lengthening ? I'm to the point of depression for not being 2 inches taller pls help
>>10874465 not op, but try telling that to me. im 5'4, there is no way that sounds attractive.
i know for a fact its a big deal, and yes, confidence and how i display myself is a plus but it only goes so far. you cant tell me with a straight face that 99% of the women on this planet would choose someone eye level or shorter than them versus someone a head length taller
>>10874465 Reaching an average height would make total difference . Especially when you have a long torso and legs of a 5'5 female /fa/ has nothing to do with it but being shorter than 8/10 of males where ever I go . 2 inches is the minimum of one procedure
>>10874473 I'm 6 ft, but it's not like I pull girls with my height only. I dress nice, talk nicer, and smell even better. That alone gets a girl to smile at you and acknowledge you, yes height does matter. But I promise you girls aren't that shallow, and if she happens to be, she's not worth it.
>>10874513 True, it is a plus I have over you. But I'm not perfect either, I have flaws you could find that you may not have. You want to know what really matters over all those things in terms of pulling women? Confidence. Try it, just fake it. I promise you will see the difference, you have one body. Learn to love it.
>>10874653 Confidence is by far more important than height. This is why I brought up my height, so you can know from who it was coming from. Girls will only realize what you let them to. Keep putting height at this pedestal and you'll never progress.
>>10874675 im keeping it at this pedestal because its more important than you, and everyone else thats not short, seems to think. i appreciate you being reasonable on a place such as 4chan but (this may sound childish) you have to be short to get it. its not a big deal to you because you dont know what its like. i know you may try to understand it but confidence will only push you so far. you need what you have on the outside to pull in people to know your inside. its not being picky or shallow, its human nature to seek someone attractive. unless youre the god of personality youre not going to slide as easily.
please i beg of you to be more honest, its old seeing everyone on earth say its not a big deal when it clearly is
>>10874482 You have no idea what it feels like to be short. No amount of "confidence" can make up for the fact that some girls simply refuse any guy under 5'10", or sometimes even 6'. This isn't just some theory I've concocted, this is something that they openly state on tinder profiles, social media, etc. No, they don't like you for your height only. Of course. This is like telling a man with a hunchback that girls don't like you for your good posture only. You clearly don't have any idea what it's like, to walk around as an adult but never feeling like a fully grown man. I don't know how it feels to be tall, but I've worn lifts to feel what it feels like to be 5'8"... completely different world. You command more authority, you can look people in the eye, you can wear looser fits... This isn't just an issue of "confidence", short men statistically have the deck stacked against them when it comes to political and economic power. The world is that shallow, and until our suffering is acknowledged instead of brushed off by 6 foot privileged fucks, it always will be.
>>10875820 If you don't get enough food and shit you could however this is dying out anyway 5'8 is decent you could wear elevator shoes(mens shoes with a big heel) and if your posture is good you may pass for 5'10 at times.
>>10874473 >you cant tell me with a straight face that 99% of the women on this planet would choose someone eye level or shorter than them versus someone a head length taller
If you're the same height as her then I don't see a problem with it, if she likes you and you have a personality that she likes then she will choose you over someone who is taller than you, that's obvious, now if you're 7 or 5 centimetres shorter than her then that's when it becomes a problem.
>>10876864 >If you're the same height as her then I don't see a problem with it thats the keyword right there. "I dont see a problem". the minority does not speak for the majority
lets put a fictional (but logical) situation on the board.
there is someone 10/10 personality and looks, but the catch is that he has 2 exact copies of him. there is one that is a reasonable 5'10 and another that is 5'4. the ONLY difference between the two is the height.
which one would a girl pick, considering that she may be something like 5'5?
>>10876986 damn. valid point. but realistically what she would have to choose from would be guy A 5'10 with a 5/10 personality or guy B 5'4 with 10/10 personality. i get what youre saying about height though, (assuming you're op) if you really feel two inches will improve you as a person, go for it, you could maybe even get more inches. but insurance will not cover it, it isnt practiced in convenient regions, and recovery time is wayyy long and you might not even fully recover. not to mention cost of the surgery..all for two inches? i know it sounds corny but love yourself for who you are and when you come to peace with your body you'll have a confidence that girls will be really attracted to
u are imposing your values onto all of several billion people
not all girls like tall guys, and some girls even prefer shorter guys. you cannot say that 100% of the girls on the planet would pick the taller guy
>>10877426 do you not see all of the baseless value statements u make? how can you decide what's an 'average thing' and declare that height is the most important attribute for every single potential partner? your personality sounds like a bigger problem than your height desu
kanye west is 5'7 but no one ever mentions his height
>"it wont solve much by fixing everything else when youre missing that one crucial piece"
D E L U S I O N A L
there are much bigger things missing OP, and i would start with your personality
im not downplaying everything other than height, dont get me wrong.
and yes i know there are people with different preferences.
ive been told alllll my life that its not a big deal, thats what im trying to get at. it is a bigger deal than most people think.
im sure my personality is fine, not the greatest but its not basementdweller-core
kanye isnt exactly short. hes about average. im talking about 5'5 and under.
yes, 2 inches doesnt sound like a lot but its the stigma it carries. saying youre 5'5 doesnt sound as attractive as saying youre 6'0 does it?
im trying not to sound crazy, but this exact issue has driven me to damn near off myself twice now. all i ever got in school were offhand jokes about my height, and that will fuck with you so much that its gonna be the only thing you focus on. its different now that im in college but thats because people learned to have filters and not say it to your face. its a thing no one wants to say but we all know its true
im by no means a 'loser' (for lack of a better word) ive at the very least talked to 7-8 women throughout the short 4 year period of highschool so i know what to do and what not to do for the most part. they were attractive so i know im not totally ass ugly and i know its not the deciding factor in things but i also know for a fact that a lot more people prefer a taller guy and thats hard when youre at most just eye level with them.
it wont make or break me, but damn does it give me a handicap
>>10877524 kendrick lamar is 5'5 yo people love him and he gets his fair share of female attention
>yes, 2 inches doesnt sound like a lot but its the stigma it carries. saying youre 5'5 doesnt sound as attractive as saying youre 6'0 does it?
you need to realize that this is in your head and that not everyone thinks like you, some people like me dont even think about height when i talk to people
but even then like.. who cares lol? its like saying
>saying im african american isnt as attractive as saying im white >saying i have a big nose isnt as attractive as saying i have a petite angular nose >saying i have a small butt isnt as attractive as saying im a firm butt
>>10877635 one feature is not automatically more attractive than the other-- like race (and height), butt size in terms of attraction is completely subjective, some prefer smaller butts and some prefer bigger butts
i mean yea you may wish you were taller and yea i may wish my nose was sharper but neither of these are deal breakers and life moves on
>>10877747 yes, i understand. i know attractiveness is in the eye of the beholder but there are some physical traits that are widespread attractive. i also know that one thing MAY not be a deal breaker
i know i cant do much sadly, but the main issue here is that no one understands that its a thing only shorter people will have to deal with. so they try to downplay it as if its not a big deal because they dont know the shit that gets pulled
>>10877747 it's just depressing when you yourself want to be taller. when you believe height does matter based on your own personal experience of being short. which makes you depressed knowing you could've been happier, more attractive to yourself,a better version of yourself if only you wouldve been a couple inches taller but anon you have a point. op im 5'3 95lbs scrawny little weak feminine thing, but i know somewhere out there will be someone who actually likes my aesthetic, and personality so i never let it get it the way of my life.
to be attractive, be very self confident because of it, have a leap in life because people view you differently and you may get chances in things that someone unattractive wouldnt have, etc etc
or would you like to be ugly, no confidence when you look yourself in the mirror, to be alone and never progress socially like all of your peers do, to hate every single part of yourself, to rather die and end the thoughts that run through your head every day because you will never ever be good enough for anything, to have to be forced to compensate in a lame way and never be taken seriously.
that last part probably sounds really fucking tumblr but i mean how can you not understand the benefits? being attractive helped when we were primates, and it still helps now. attractiveness in out own eyes is something we are hardwired to look for.
i mean, congrats i guess if you pick someone unnattractive. gold star for you, but that does not change what the majority would think
>>10877850 my happiness (and my view of myself) doesn't depend on the opinions of others
i do the things i like (indulge in art, read philosophy, play an instrument, eat food) and that makes me happy. height or looks in general don't affect my ability to enjoy any of those things.
>or would you like to be ugly since when does short = ugly >no confidence when you look yourself in the mirror you can change that if you change the way you look at the world >to be alone and never progress socially like all of your peers do height doesn't stop people from making friends >to hate every single part of yourself, to rather die and end the thoughts that run through your head every day because you will never ever be good enough for anything this is all literally just in your head >to have to be forced to compensate in a lame way and never be taken seriously dont compensate, just re-evaluate the way you look at things. instead of trying to look good for others, just do what makes you fucking happy. then you don't have to deal with these pathetic (sorry!) feelings
>>10877898 your interests scream poser, faggot. that being said, anon has good advice op. just do you, fuk teh haters, and you'll be happy. unless you're already too far in the depression, then either kill yourself or get as much plastic surgery until you feel you're attractive
>>10877898 im glad that you have a different way of looking at things, but not everyone is like you.
i have hobbies, im living a (sort of) healthy lifestyle, im doing what i can to improve my quality of living other than all the drugs i abuse.
>since when does short = ugly it doesnt go hand in hand, i was responding to "why is being attractive to a lot of people important to you?" but it does help
>you can change that if you change the way you look at the world i can also change the way i look at things if i hang upside down. its not that simple. ive went through a lot of self realization, repair, and other petty shit to help myself so its not like im doing nothing to help my situation.
>height doesn't stop people from making friends never said friends. more like relating to people in a way. its different if all of your friends and acquaintances are all taller than you. its hard to describe unless youve been through it. its just a different thing than you would go through if you were normal.
>this is all literally just in your head no shit, everything is in our heads. your happiness from your hobbies? all in your head. just because i realize this does not mean its as simple as snapping my fingers.
>dont compensate, just re-evaluate the way you look at things. instead of trying to look good for others, just do what makes you fucking happy. then you don't have to deal with these pathetic (sorry!) feelings
compensate as in things such as fashion, body, hair, how i carry myself, etc.
but again, its not as easy as just saying "lol fuck everyone, im gonna do me" if you want to fit in. everyone that pulled that shit had their own social circle of autism and smugness which granted them no real friends, only people that fed off everyone elses 'superiority from society'
Can confirm, 5'7 here dating a 5'9 girl who has modeled before. She's not one of those super thin anorectic ugly models, she's truly beautiful.
I was really insecure about my height before, but no girl ever really mentioned it. I met this girl and I almost think nothing of it anymore. The only girls who care about height are the ugly ones, literally. The best girls can choose any guy, so they wont choose after looks because it doesn't matter to them anymore.
Also, you can say that 99% of all girls wouldn't date a guy with acne, 99% of girls wouldnt date a skellyboy, 99% of girls wouldnt date a guy with bad teeth etc etc list can go on forever. This website was the only thing that made me insecure about my height.
